What are information events?
Many EU citizens been asking questions about the application of EU law, what their EU rights are now and what they are going to be in the future. The contents of the Draft Withdrawal Agreement are not well-known by EU citizens in the UK. Local community and diaspora organisations, charities and volunteers play a key role in providing information to EU27 citizens and many such organisations hold information sessions for their members.
The European Commission Representation in the UK supports this effort by offering contracted solicitors to attend your forthcoming events on EU citizens' rights. The solicitors are available, for free, to provide impartial, politically neutral information on EU citizens’ rights and the European Parliament elections, and be available to participate in question and answer sessions. They can provide general information, but they can also tailor the information to the interests of your particular locality or group.
The safety of our staff, EU citizens, and everyone else connected to this service, is our primary consideration. We will continue to be guided by official advice from the relevant government and health authorities and we trust that all those requesting our service will also be guided by the same authorities. The EU Settlement Scheme continues and the deadline remains unchanged therefore it is important to continue information events online until such time we can resume face-to-face events. We will continue to take bookings during this period and can provide the same support service to local community groups wishing to engage their community online. If you wish to discuss how we can support you online, please contact Seraphus
